For me this is too little too late. Muse group have show their colours and I no longer want to use any of their products

Also, this feels too much like crocodile tears. As in they’re only apologizing as damage control because people were choosing to fork the project or not use it entirely, not because they actually feel bad.

I feel you, but Audacity is still the top free audio editor. Perhaps a fork is in order?

Hopefully development will settle on one soon.

Couldn’t agree more. They’ve shown their true colours more than once now - but the deportation thing was deplorable - and I will be switching to a fork very soon.

But, my personal switching from Audacity to something else is only meaningful to me. I think Muse Group should be shunned to the point where they can only support Ultimate Guitar.

This tells you what a pile of steaming shit corporations really are when they get so much power over individuals and individuals lack protection against this stuff.

"they have been threatening an anti-CCP Chinese software developer over his life with threats such as “deporting you to China”

This is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.
